HTC G2 And myTouch 3G Slide Getting Update Thanks to T-Mobile And HTC

Two ancient (by tech standards) phones getting updates? We must be dreaming, and it’s a good dream. Granted, these updates don’t raise the Android version, but they do come with improvements. These improvements are actually necessary, as the highlight is a security patch for both phones. As you know, some security improvements came along that needed to be pushed to phones, but many phones never got the update. This means that people still using these phones will at least be secure.

Both updates feature a nondescript security patch, along with improved software stability. None of that changelog was at all detailed, so we’ll just have to trust them

myTouch 3G Slide
Software version upped to 2.15.531.5 (Android 2.2)
Not an OTA, download RUU (ROM Update Utility) from HTC here

G2
Software version upped to 2.16.531.6 (Android 2.3.4)
Not an OTA, download RUU (ROM Update Utility) from HTC here

I’d definitely suggest updating, security fixes are always important. Go get em!
